Policy Research to Inform Discussion on Scope of Practice

Alex Hoyt, PhD, RN, a Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions School of Nursing Assistant Professor is using his recently awarded RWJF grant to bring policy research to the political debate over nurse practitioners’ (NPs') scope of practice. Dr. Hoyt was recently awarded a $250,000 grant via the Future of Nursing National Research Agenda initiative.

Dr. Hoyt plans to study the influence of regulatory changes on the NP workforce over time, how organizations interpret state practice regulations, and how these factors impact cost, quality, and access to care.
